Duke (non-Fuqua) Graduate Student Enrollment

MBA courses: Duke graduate students (who are not already enrolled at Fuqua) must request enrollment in a Fuqua MBA course by completing the Duke Graduate Student MBA Course Permission Form and submitting it to their home department/school for processing.

MMS courses: Non-Fuqua/Duke graduate students who wish to request enrollment in a Fuqua MMS course must complete a Duke Graduate Student MMS Course Permission Form and submit it to the MMS Program Office in Fuqua's West Wing Office W216.

Inter-Institutional Student Enrollment

UNC, NC State, and NC Central students must submit the Inter-Institutional Form to enroll in Fuqua courses. Students should also consult the registrar’s office at their home institution and follow the Inter-Institutional Guidelines.   

Official registration for non-Fuqua students takes place the day following the Fuqua drop/add period on a space available basis.

Before registering for Fuqua courses, consider the information below:

  • Daytime MBA schedules are available online and are updated frequently.
  • Fuqua is on a term system with two 6-week terms per semester. Classes meet for 2 hours and 15 minutes Monday and Thursday, or Tuesday and Friday. Please check the ACES website for class times and rooms.
  • The intense schedule outlined above makes it difficult to miss even a single class without falling behind.
  • Students within a class form teams. There are often outside projects and assignments accomplished through teamwork. Our students communicate by email. If you take a course at Fuqua you will need an email account and Fuqua LogOn ID (it should be the same as your NetID).
  • Class participation is a significant portion of the grade in many courses.
  • We recommend that you sit in on the first class even though you have not yet been formally added to the course. Then, if there is space available and your request is approved, you will not be behind. Check the ACES website for seat availability information.
  • Check the Registration Dates for Non-Fuqua Students page for date information.
